DVD Player freezing

This started happening after I tried to play a DVD that is only supposed to be played on a computer or portable device. The DVD is still spinning but the picture will randomly freeze but sound will continue to come out of the speakers. The only way to get it unforzen right away is to hit pause then hit play. After a bit, it freezes the entire DVD and nothing works until you either turn the TV off or switch to TV, AV or HD and then back to HD.

What is causing this and can it be fixed or do I need to take it back (I've had it just over a month and I think I have a 90 day warranty on it) and get a different one. I've heard of it happening on portable DVD players but never on DVD players connected to a TV before. Any suggestions?

You need to take this back if you have the option. The picture freezing lets us know that the data stream is stopping. It will not work right again and it was just coincidental that you uses a diffrent kind of dvd.

This is a universal cable. You may have received one with your portable DVD player. You can find them for cheap at thrift stores.
You need a four pin minijack (3.5mm) to 3 RCA.

My rca mobile dvd player is saying no disk or playing the start of a movie then freezing

its either the dvd lens is burnt out or dirty or the disc you are trying to play is dirty or damage try to clean the disc with a clean cloth wiping it outward in one direction, if you already tried other disc or tried the same disc on other players and it works it might be the lens. try to get a dvd lens cleaner if that did not work you might need to re-align the lens or replace it.
hope that helps. please rate

Dear Sirs, Recently, my Sharp dvd-video combi player has been encountering some problems regarding the playing of dvd's. When I watch a movie, in several occasions the movie will freeze up. And for...

the DVD unit in your sharp is a self contained unit. IT is only repaired by replacing the DVD as a assembly. the cost of replacing may exceed the cost of purchasing a new one.
The most likely cause of your problem is in the brass gear assy that runs the optical pick up in the traverse deck. IT is not an available part.
